    Nearly All Covid Deaths in US Are Now Among Unvaccinated

    Hi! Thank you for taking time to respond to my post. Hoping you and yours stay safe 'n well. Though we may never visit your country again, we take out our memories of Canada and burnish them lovingly from time to time. Meanwhile, I content myself with writing some really bad poetry. An...

    Nearly All Covid Deaths in US Are Now Among Unvaccinated

    Should a further mutation of the Covid-19 virus occur [We're up to the Delta strain, with the next being Epsilon,] we will not have to concern ourselves over whether it originated in a lab or a live food market. We'll be reasonably certain that it came from one of us -- h. sapiens -- who was not...

    DeSantis signs bill requiring Florida students, professors to register political views with state

    Oh, my! The usual brouhaha and palaver. Soon this thread will degenerate into hurled imprecations. This law will, in all probability, not take effect due to judicial stays until reviewed by the Supreme Court of the United States of America. This observer of the passing parade will put...

    Made in a lab vs not made in a lab: so what?

    While the lab/market controversy may never be settled, we can look at the emergence of mutations of the Covid-19 virus. Right now we're up to the Delta strain. It may well be followed by an Epsilon variation. That one may be more contagious and/or more virulent than Delta. We will know the...

    Republicans Use Filibuster To Block Debate On Voting Rights Bill

    Once again, what was intended as a deliberative body chose not to deliberate. And so it goes. Regards, stay safe 'n well.

    Delta Variant

    Hi, Sagittarius83! My primary science degree is a BS in chemistry. It was part of a classical education which included courses in ethics, sociology, history, languages, logic and comparative religion, to note a few. Graduate studies included work in education and business, specifically...

    Delta Variant

    Hi, NewfieMom! I'm a retired scientist with graduate studies in a number of additional disciplines. Now, those with a degree in science can be just as nutters as those without. It depends upon whether they've incorporated a scientist's way of thinking into their everyday tool kit or not. Those...

    Brooks among those opposing Juneteenth as federal holiday

    Politicians here in the United States of America find it necessary, more often than not, to make broad, inclusive statements to their base and prospective voters. Broad, inclusive [Ed.: and unqualified,] statements are open to attack when there is even a single contrary instance. These days...

    Majorities in new poll support early voting, voter ID

    Once a democracy, broadly defined, moves from a 'pure' citizen vote on issues and the response to them through legislation, we're into representative government. The legislators then have their duties either defined by a constitution or find themselves adrift in a sea of decisions. Should they...

    The U.S. Has Hit 600,000 COVID Deaths, More Than Any Other Country

    As I write this, the Delta variant of the Covid-19 virus is spreading throughout the United States of America. The probability of an Epsilon mutant is relatively high. That variant may be more infectious and/or more virulent than the Delta strain. Should it appear, it will not be an escapee...

    ‘Two Americas’ may emerge as Delta variant spreads and vaccination rates drop

    We're now witness to the appearance and spread of the Delta variant of the Covid-19 virus in the United States of America. It is reported to be more contagious and, possible, more virulent. There exists the possibility of Epsilon, Zeta, Eta and still other mutations arising. Some may be more...

    Majorities in new poll support early voting, voter ID

    Hi, Ikari! The concept of 'One person, one vote' often does not obtains in its pure form in the United States of America. As an example, the Electoral College, which stands astride the vote for President of the United States of America, results in some voters having over three times the...

    Majorities in new poll support early voting, voter ID

    Hi, Clara! I'm not sure how something like that would work, or if it would even be considered in drafting the legislation. It may well be moot, though. Given the present political milieu, should a member of one party suggest such legislation, the other party would find a reason to oppose it...

    Majorities in new poll support early voting, voter ID

    There has never been a better time for our two major political parties to institute a national ID card. We are already close to it with our social security system identification. Modern tech should make such identification difficult to counterfeit. Regards, stay safe 'n well.

    Delta Variant

    As the brouhaha over the actual source of the first Covid-19 virus infection in man [lab vs. foodstuff] continues, we can be far more certain of the origin of the Delta variant now spreading. It occurred, in all probability, in a human being who was not vaccinated against the virus. That person...
